Default Boost Internet

I've got an old Inspiron 6000 Laptop that I bought maybe...5 or 6 years ago...I can't remember. Anyway, I have been using it while I'm outside like I used to use it...and the wireless card is having a hard time connecting to the router. Is there any way to boost my wireless internet on the laptop itself? I don't really want to boost the router signal. I read something about tinfoil and a can...but it just confused me. Any ideas?

A new wireless card could do the trick.

INSPIRON 6000 B120 B130 2200 D600 5150 WIRELESS CARD - eBay (item 320426135355 end time Nov-13-10 16:56:10 PST)

(I thought you were talking about Boost Mobile )
